    I'm really curious if there will be more Dark Times arcs after A Spark Remains. Damn, I'm obsessed with that series :p

    I think people are worried because the ST is coming out very soon, and its potential erasing of the post RoTJ EU might result in the cancellation of SoTJ.

    Me too. I've been badly wanting details on these books for a while now

    More importantly, how Del Rey is acting with future books might give us some hints on where the ST may or may not be going regarding erasure/rebooting.

    And I'm pretty sure Del Rey knows it, which is why they're playing their cards close to their chest (if Del Rey has any info about where the ST is going at all, which is unclear).

    Looks like Stradley showed the panel a trailer for The Star Wars. Too bad I'm not there and can't see it. :(

    Dark Horse will continue to publish Star Wars until at least the end of 2014. Also, Tom Taylor is working on a new Star Wars project! :D

    With the new movies, many people want to know if they will stick to the EU. If they don't, what happens to the EU? We are just wondering what Del Rey and Disney are going to do. That's why we think it might be cancelled.

    Extremely excited for the new Tom Taylor series. If it's still the same as he originally said, it will be about Luke and illustrated by Chris Scalf.

    Anyone at the Del Rey panel can you please ask if we are getting any books about stormtroopers/clonetroopers in the future.

    Yes? Do we know the author? Title?

    No, that we know about it at all is only because someone asked a question about clones/stormtroopers.

    heh. It's surprising how much you can get through questions.

    If the clone isn't Bow or Appo then they are wasting my time.

    Hmmm. I doubt any of the comic news sites I frequent will have a live blog of the Del Rey panel. Does anyone know any site that might or someone on Twitter who could tweet what happens?

    Did anybody ask when AotE is coming back, and if it's not coming back, why it's not coming back? Because it should come back.
